He was the perfect assassin. No name. No past. No remorse. Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability.

And so Boy Nobody is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty.

His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of an extremist military training camp for teenagers. It sounds like a simple task, but a previous operative couldn't do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Now Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly.

But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth.

The riveting second book in Allen Zadoff's Boy Nobody series delivers heart-pounding action and a shocking new twist that makes Boy Nobody question everything he has believed.

I binge read The Hit ( you can read my review here) and The Mission in 6 hours over four days, back in July because I couldn't wait.  It's a wonder I'm not freaking paranoid right now...okay, more paranoid. So. Worth. It. I can honestly say this has become one of my favourite series because it is completely immoral and completely badass. And there's just something about it that's addicting, that made me not want to put it down because I had to know what came next.
